What’s the perfect Singapore souvenir for the person who has everything? A pot of Tiger Balm? Too pungent. Singapore sling mix? Too touristy. Instead, head to Cartier for the venerable jeweller’s take on Singapore’s signature flower, the orchid. Cartier’s Les Orchidées collection includes beautiful bejewelled versions of the exotic blooms, from simple gold-and-diamond earrings to floral necklaces with jewelled tendrils.
